ONSPRING INSIGHTS

Sports, Heartbreak & Platform Implementations

Sometimes a little pain still brings big gain. Be it football or GRC platforms, rough and bumpy opening scenarios don’t mean you won’t have future success.

Rethinking the RCM

Much like fire and early man, the Excel-based RCM-to-Assurance Professional relationship has seemingly been in existence since the dawn of time (or at least the dawn of Excel). Thankfully there is a better way to manage this critical element of your assurance process. And you can do it without having to sacrifice what made the Excel-based approach so appealing in the first place—structured data, demonstration of key relationships, management of key attributes.

More Minds on Your Business

There are a lot of advantages to opening up your data—within reason. Team members who are both a key holder and a person trying to access sequestered data can find it to be a tricky proposition as to when to be an open model and when to remain closed.

A Little Plan Goes a Long Way

Poor work results can almost always be avoided. If you’ve fallen into this trap before, not to worry. There is a way around the stressful feeling of not knowing what you’re doing, and a way to conquer poor time management, a bad habit that can take us down in a hurry.

Onspring Mixtape: Greatest Hits of 2018

The “Onspring DJs” have done it again. Like your favorite 80s radio host, we’ve put together a mixtape of our favorite blogs from 2018. If you’ve read them before, you’ll want to read them again. Enjoy!

Giving Back and Going Forward

We owe our success to an entire group of professionals: the Onspring Community. This team is comprised of Onspring employees, clients and partners who meet regularly to creatively solve problems using innovative software and process design.

Challenge What You Know

Before we had Netflix, we went to the movies with friends. Before we had smartphones, we talked on landlines, sent letters and had regular, in-person interaction (gasp!). Those were (and are) good things. In our pursuit of innovation, let’s not forget the value of our past modes and methods.

Workplace FOMO

A lot of fear comes from not being prepared, not having the correct support needed to fulfill and complete a job. The more it happens, the more FOMO creeps in and takes over, and that can become a truly destructive force in an office setting.

All Signs Point to Legal

From the perspective of the Legal professional, the demand on time and effort can be difficult to capture, organize and manage. Time is, as we all know, expensive. The Onspring Corporate Counsel solution allows Legal teams of all shapes and sizes to manage the requests, reviews and matters.

Contractual Obligation

It’s funny how the mere mention of “contract review” causes tension in a room. In one corner, you have the people who are trying to execute a contract and get down to business. For them, the review and approval process can’t move swiftly enough. In the other corner, you have those who are responsible for going through contracts with a fine-toothed comb. They don’t want to be rushed in their work. It’s too important to get it right—and far too costly if things go wrong.

Don’t Look Now…Change Is Coming

We’ve all endured crazy weather and awful films, but riding out the stormy times of workplace problems can be just as terrible with over-played dramatics and make-believe villains. Before the raging winds of the aforementioned problems get any closer, leave your theater seat and get moving—change is calling. First thing, fight off the knee-jerk urge to ignore the call and embrace it. Unlike the characters in the bad movie, you have the power to control your own destiny.

Preventing a Software Frankenstein with Design & Care

Have you created a software Frankenstein? Though the intent of your creation may have been something beautiful, the positive aspects of the design are quickly overshadowed by glaring design issues. This ultimately results in an army of villagers (your customers) chasing you down with fire and pitchforks. Chad Kreimendahl explains how to get yourself out of this monstrous dilemma.
